Laulau (ラウラウ)

By Billy Hammond (Copyright AELS) March 6, 2021     Laulau My sister and her friends made “laulau” for a charity fundraiser last month. Laulau is a Hawaiian food made with butterfish, pork and beef wrapped in taro leaf covered with ti leaves. It’s steamed, tastes a little salty and goes well with rice. It’s a popular food for fundraisers (I helped made it often when I was a Boy Scout and also for my judo and karate clubs). It’s a food that you should really try if you want to sample Hawaiian cuisine. Don’t eat too many, though (it will give you the runs!) *Photos taken by my sister ラウラウ 先月妹と彼女の友人達は慈善団体の募金イベントのために『ラウラウ』を作った。ラウラウとはハワイの現地料理で、マナガツオ、豚肉、牛肉、ハワイアン塩をタロ芋葉で包んで、センネンボクの葉でまとめてかぶせた料理。蒸して作ったラウラウは塩分が高いため、ハワイの高温環境で長持ちする。味は塩が効いていてご飯にとても合う。 ハワイでは資金集めによく使われる料理で、私はボーイスカウトや空手と柔道クラブのイベントによく手伝って作った料理だ。 本物のハワイの現地料理を味わたいなら、ラウラウを一度食べる必要がある(但し、数多くを食べない方がいい(見事に下痢するよ!) ************** English novels by Billy Hammond published by AELS (AELS出版英語書籍リスト)   I. Majoh Gakuin and Hikari Juku – Japanese Witch Schools Trilogy 1. Majoh Gakuin & Hikari Juku – […]

Choosing a Parent Before Birth (生まれる前の親選び)

By Billy Hammond February 22, 2021 In the famous case of James Leininger, the young boy who remembered being a US pilot shot down in WWII, there is another aspect to his story with interesting implications. It seems that he remembered being able to choose his birth parents while he was in “heaven” He apparently chose his parents while they were in Hawaii before he was born*. He offered specific information about the couple’s stay there. This advances an interesting idea: that the deceased get to choose their parents. Dr. Tucker mentions other instances in his well-researched book, “Return to Life”, but this example is the most intriguing , because the geographical distances involved in this case are so wide. 生まれる前の親選び 第二次世界大戦にパイロットであったジェイムズ ・レイニンガー の有名な輪廻例の話の中には面白い情報がある。 どうやら彼は別世界に居た間に生まれてくる親を選べた。両親がハワイの旅行中に観察して選んだ。選んだ瞬間の特定できる情報(ピンクホテル滞在や海辺の夕食中)も提供した。* この例により、生まれ変わる前に親を選べることが考える。タッカー先生は他の似た実例 を『Return to Life』に取り上げるが、地理的な距離から考えるとこれが最も面白いだ。 *Tucker M.D., Jim B.. Return to Life (p. 85, 86). St. […]
